multipathing

Multiple physical access paths to a disk connected to a host system. Any software residing on the host (for example, the DMP driver) that hides multiple physical access paths from the user is said to provide multipathing functionality.

See also Dynamic Multipathing (DMP)

Where there are multiple physical access paths to a disk connected to a system, the disk is called multipathed. Any software residing on the host, (for example, the DMP driver) that hides this fact from the user is said to provide multipathing functionality.
